This delicious, energetic and, above all, very healthy recipe provides all the nutrients, vitamins and minerals the body needs.
Originally from the French region of Brittany, the crepe is one of the world’s most versatile basic dishes. It can be eaten as breakfast, lunch, snack or dinner, as a main dish or dessert; it can be sweet or savoury and, moreover, is perfect for all kinds of fillings. However, at SHA our crepe recipe does not include any of the traditional ingredients like eggs, milk, butter and sugar. We’ve replaced them with healthier, more energetic options that are packed with nutrition.
Buckwheat is a source of fibre, protein, B vitamins, minerals (such as phosphorus, copper and magnesium), and omega 3 and 6 fatty acids. It has many health benefits: it regulates sugar and cholesterol levels, strengthens the cardiovascular system, provides energy and is rich in rutin, a flavonoid that improves blood circulation. Rice drink is low in sodium and saturated fat and contains more manganese and selenium than any other vegetable drink. It is a source of trace elements, flavonoids, antioxidants, healthy carbohydrates and B vitamins such as niacin, helping to strengthen the immune and nervous systems, prevent cardiovascular problems and improve digestion, metabolism and intestinal transit. And, since it is gluten-free, it is suitable for coeliacs.
The healing power of garlic has been known for centuries. In fact, Hippocrates, known as the “father of modern Western medicine”, prescribed it to combat all kinds of issues, from respiratory problems to lack of energy. Garlic has a high nutritional value and provides many of the macronutrients the body needs. It contains vitamins A, B6 and C and minerals such as calcium, iron, phosphorus, magnesium and zinc, which help the pancreas and liver work properly. Garlic thus purifies the body, reduces cholesterol levels, improves blood circulation and digestion, stimulates the respiratory system and is a natural antibiotic. But perhaps its best quality is that it helps to absorb nutrients from other foods. Finally, oregano is a powerful antioxidant rich in vitamins A, C, E and K, fibre, iron, magnesium, calcium and potassium, has anti-inflammatory, analgesic and antiseptic properties and helps the digestive and respiratory systems function properly.
